Arlo Pyke turned one recently. To celebrate her first birthday her parents, Ashleigh and Leighton Pyke, invited family and friends to donate a small gift to KOALA Kids, for a child of a similar age undergoing cancer treatment or the sibling of one, in lieu of a gift for Arlo.
Ashleigh has volunteered with KOALA Kids since completing her marketing degree. While working at L’Oreal for five years, Ash provided KOALA Kids with quite literally hundreds and hundreds of fashion and lifestyle magazines for the families at the Children’s Cancer Centres and Peter Mac to distract them from hours of waiting around clinic, treatment and long hospital stays.
Ashleigh is pleased to have the opportunity to support KOALA Kids through Arlo and will shortly be visiting the Children’s Cancer Centre at The Royal Children’s Hospital one Monday morning to personally hand out the gifts to the families.
